Rayo Vallecano boss Paco Jemez has warned his players not to underestimate Elche when the two teams face each other on Monday.
The Franjirrojos play the newly-promoted side in their opening League game of the campaign tomorrow.
And the Coach has insisted that it will be a tough encounter.
“Elche have come up after being out of the Primera for a long time,” he told a Press conference.
“They are a team that are going to make things difficult for us.
“They will work well and leave very little space for us.
“We have to be calm and patient, and then hopefully things will go well.”
